I travel early tomorrow morning and my neighbor will come in to tend to my kitty while I'm gone. I took some time this morning to really "look around" and pick up/clean a few extra items.
This morning as I worked on my "dance" I had a very strong sense of how these daily tasks connect to my food plan. For me the "routine" in my home and the daily/weekly/monthly progress connect very strongly with the daily/weekly/monthly progress I find with my weightloss. As the clutter keeps disappearing I am finding so much less stress and increased time and energy for "dieting." The daily connection with my "stuff" reminds me, too, to have a daily connection with my evolving food plan.
-I got a fantastic deal before xmas on the dark choc. we enjoy in moderation. It's been hidden from DH or he'd eat my profits very quickly. This morning I pulled all the bars out (30+) and vacuum sealed them for the freezer. That lead to rethinking the waxed paper/parchment paper stored on top of the vacuum sealer....I found a space where they'd fit in another kitchen drawer which held lots of gadgets. I sorted through and identified 3 which I will never use. They are in my thrift box. That lead me to look at the contents of my china hutch. I am not ready to deal with that yet and that's ok.
-picked up, washed dishes and consolidated laundry for after work-so my work clothes will be clean when I return home next week.
-looked at my beautiful lacquer teaset which I brought back from HongKong 37 years ago. It is an item I have chosen to keep even though I have no use for it. I brought it into the kitchen and washed each piece and put it back in it's (for now) spot. Eventually it will have a better home.
, I relate...I used to attack one room full force then run out of energy for everything else. I am now finding that all rooms progress a bit at a time which seems more "balanced". Yay for a 1-2-3 no matter how small.
), yay for movement of "stuff" even as you continue to be very gentle with yourself.
), how wonderful to be feeling congruent with internal values. Nice, too, that DD could support you in transitioning with a change to your Beck card. My big shift was from "I want to be healthy" to "I want to stay healthy".
Ok, long winded this morning....have a great day everyone. I am going to do a bit of packing this morning before work. Last trip I forgot my ipod which is something I really enjoy having over there when I have time to go to the gym and ride a recumbent bike. This time I won't forget.
